Associate Professor of Exercise Physiology
Director of University of Lynchburg Active Aging Program
I have been a professor in higher education since 2009 where I have trained students in both the practice and the research methods in the field of clinical exercise physiology. I have received recognition from my peers as an innovative and engaged educator and student mentor. My professional belief is that physical activity in all its forms can be beneficial for the majority of adults and I have confidence that the exercise physiology students we graduate are best prepared as exercise professionals.
